Hi gang! Happy Saturday! Does anyone have any fun plans for this weekend? I am possibly going to see World War Z (zombies and Brad Pitt what more could a girl want in a movie?) and am eagerly awaiting Sunday's Mad Men season finale! Has anyone else felt this season has been beyond crazy- but in a good way? And I officially hate Don Draper now. Seriously. Hate.
Anyway, on to the polish. Today I have three nail applique designs that Incoco
was kind of enough to send to me for review. Incoco makes nail appliques that are 3 Free and 100% real nail polish and features dozens of designs. Check out more pic and my full review after the jump.
First up I have Incoco French Manicure Nail Applique in Champagne. These were the first of the bunch that I tried out and I definitely had a bit of learning curve with them. The french manicure appliques come in two parts with the tips separate from the sheer base. I was a but put off by this at first but they were surprisingly easy to apply. The wraps are very thin and stretchy. Which helped a lot in smoothing them out. As you can see in the pics I still had issues with wrinkles but I think that had more to do with me than the appliques themselves.
Next up is Rose Tea. It is one of the simple color polish designs. This one was not easy to use for me. It felt thinner than the other wraps and I found myself attempting to readjust them on my nail and not being able to because they were so thin. Hence why my index finger looks crazy. I went through about 3 of the appliques just trying to get a smooth surface and finally gave up. I didn't apply top coat for the pics but I highly recommend that you do if you purchase these. The color was rather flat and dull on it's own.
And last but not least is Total Bombshell, a water-marble design. This is my favorite of the trio! A water marble without the mess and general sense of failure that usually accompanies it? Yes, please! I don't know if it was due to the design, but these did not feel as thin and prone to wrinkles as the other two did. I was able to apply these in less than 10 minutes and didn't have the need to readjust constantly. A word to the wise: You will need to use the foil method to remove these. They are chockful of gold glitter that can get everywhere when you are removing them.
Overall, I would say these are okay. I'm not a nail applique girl in general, and haven't had a ton of experience with them, but if you are and are great at applying them I think these could work well for you. I did love the fact that I didn't have to do anything crazy or time-consuming to get them to apply, like hold a hair dryer over them or other things I have read you have to do with some nail wraps. Incoco Nail Appliques
retail from $5.99-9.99 depending on the design or color. They also offer Pedicure appliques, which I must admit have caught my eye since I loathe painting my toes!
